How Does Bridge Construction affect our sailing? Simply put, It Doesn't!
Graham Commuter Partners is currently working on the Traffic Bridge replacement project. Part of their construction process is to work with the community and abide by municipal, provincial and federal laws and regulations. In our communication with them, they have assured us there will be no affect on our sailing schedule during 2016. This is backed up by the permits they have been issued by Transport Canada in compliance with the Federal Navigation Protection Act. We are looking forward to a great summer and a new bridge!
We also expect many of our passengers will be pleased to get an "on-water" view of the new bridge construction!
Waiting for Spring.... see you in May, 2015!
